REVIEWS: Review: Grid 2
June 19, 2013 - 0 comments
Because of where racing games were at the time, and what Grid did for the genre, I have a fond memory of the original title. As such I was super excited to see what Codemasters had put together for the follow-up, Grid 2. Could they reinvigorate the racing genre again? What new twists on the classic formulas would we see this time around? And most importantly where does it fit in amongst the glut of racing titles over the past few years? After playing quite a lot of Grid 2 over the past couple weeks, all those questions have been answered and sadly the answers aren’t quite as cheery as my memories of the original game.

My perception of this series has been consistently positive, however, with in the confines of positivity, it has been a bit of an up and down venture. It took 3 chapters to find its groove, and save for a couple stumbles, made it to the finale in fine fashion. Unfortunately, the finale was one of the weakest chapters in the series.

Metro: Last Light is a stunningly atmospheric game. Though it falls short in enemy AI, the overall package well worth the investment.

There is a song on Metallica’s classic 1986 album, Master of Puppets, called The Thing That Should Not Be and I’ve always thought that it would work perfectly as music for a horror film or game. While tonally the music would not fit well with Techland’s Dead Island: Riptide, the sequel to their popular zombie slaying RPG, its title does kind of lay out exactly what I think of the game. Dead Island: Riptide is the thing that should not be.

Blizzard’s Diablo series is one of the most successful franchises in gaming. As with any success, everyone wants to recreate it by making something similar but putting their own twist on it. One of the more successful imitators is the Sacred series. I only mention this because while I know the Sacred series, the latest game in the series, Sacred Citadel, took me a little by surprise. So much so that I did not actually realize it was a Sacred game.

Ever since Mario Party burst on the scene, mini-game collections have become a mainstay on gaming consoles. While other systems also have their fair share, the success of the Wii as a living room device used by families has cemented their association with Nintendo. And since everyone wants a piece of that casual, family pie, everyone has some sort of game to capitalize on their fan base. The latest in that long line of titles is The Croods: Prehistoric Party!, a “party” game based on the animated family film of the same name.
